No other room in a home draws a crowd like the kitchen. No matter the effort, people generally congregate in the kitchen. It must flow well, be extremely functional AND be welcoming and beautiful!
I had a blast planning this kitchen. I have a tendency to get a bit obsessive over the details. I love to plan out where each and every piece will live in a kitchen. It took some prodding but I was able to get my awesome cabinet guys to custom cut this beautiful design for these glass front cabinets. They are definitely the focal point in this kitchen. I love them! They did a fabulous job!
It’s also unlike me to keep a pallet fairly subdued as far as color goes. But in the kitchen I wanted to have a neutral backdrop for all the accessories options!
In this kitchen I went with Ben Moore Linen White for the vast majority of the cabinets.
And BM Louisburg green for one wall with the fridge and baker’s cabinet as well as the island.
I added just a touch of color via these red lanterns hanging above the island.
I chose gold for the “jewelry” of the room. The faucet, pot filler and all the cabinet hardware are brass.
This little eyebrow opening creates a bar area and connects the kitchen to the family room. And nothing is better for a pure, fresh look in a kitchen than carrara marble for the countertops.
Just a few, green, gold and clean white accessories with white hydrangea make this kitchen extremely welcoming and beautiful. I love that my Grandma Emma’s green bowl and pitcher work perfectly in the space.
I actually already had these cream bar stools and they worked perfectly for the bar area!
One simple window treatment was made for this space. To tie the family room to this kitchen, I went with this Robert Allen fabric with a leafy pattern on it. I love the way it flows with the Louisburg Green on the cabinets on the opposite end of the kitchen.
This Shaw’s Original farmhouse sink is over sized and awesome overlooking the backyard.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my kitchen reveal! What are your favorite things about your own kitchen? How do you choose to entertain and connect with friends and family in it?
